    That's what I was saying above, the ski jump on E and the paddle on the 9 and the curved verticals on liberty tell you it is a class 6 DDO but they don't tell you which one it is, only the markers can tell which it is but it is a DDO.

    Look at the link Pete posted for VV 010.

    The way to do this is look at the similar class 6 DDOs, narrow it down with the position of the mintmark.
    From that, it looks like that one may be it.

    In the end, if everything about the doubling matches and mintmark location matches perfectly and there is no other listed one with the same mintmark location.... for me I'd label it even without markers. It's not 100% but the odds of having matching doubling and mintmark location on an identical unlisted one are pretty small. You don't always find markers to 100% verify it.

    CCs 003 http://coppercoins.com/lincoln/diest...&die_state=mds crosses to VVs 010 http://varietyvista.com/01a%20LC%20D...945DDDO010.htm Like Ed said the markers may not match... Some markers such as die abrasions can wear away or be removed by subsequent abrasions... Cracks and chips can be different sizes between die stages (smaller on early stages and larger on later)... Other than differences between die stages the DDs and MMs will not change in location!!! Since CC is MDS and VV is Stage B (which normally crosses to CCs MDS) if you have none of the noted markers yours could be a different stage!!!
